Project summary

Nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of southwest Queensland, Australia, Cunnamulla stands as an inviting haven for adventurous travelers in search of an unparalleled outback experience.

Situated along the tranquil banks of the Warrego River, Cunnamulla unveils a captivating landscape where the vast plains seamlessly merge with the boundless skies, offering an escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life.

At the heart of this setting lies a serene bathing oasis, where mineral rich artesian waters flow beneath the earth’s surface. Here, guests are invited to embark on a journey of relaxation and rejuvenation amidst a constellation of geothermal mineral pools, complemented by a cold plunge pool, sauna, and steam room.

Shaded by the graceful coolabah and eucalyptus trees that line the riverside, visitors can unwind and immerse themselves in the tranquility of their surroundings, while basking under the mesmerizing starlit skies of the outback during nighttime soaks.

The design concept is a celebration of the lifegiving waters of the Great Artesian Basin and the critical role it’s played in culture and society over ancient and recent times.

Today, this facility is a tremendous community asset that will deliver opportunity to our community for eons.
Water, regenerative experiences, and relaxed gathering areas are a feature of outback life.

Cunnamulla Hot Springs delivers all this … a destination!
